Students Have Opportunity to Explore Non-Profit Career Options at Conference

January 10th, 2014 by 


More than 30 Holy Cross students from all four class years will take part in the 8th annual Non-Profit Careers Conference being held on campus from Jan. 13 to 17.

Sponsored by the College’s Donelan Office of Community-Based Learning and the Office of Career Planning, and taught by Holy Cross alumni, faculty and staff, the five-day event will introduce students to the wide range of careers available in non-profit and public service settings.

In addition to participating in professional development, vocational discernment and leadership workshops, students will conduct on-site case studies at local community agencies, where they will be asked to identify and present solutions to a real problem facing their assigned non-profit — gaining valuable hands-on experience in the process.
